The top o' the recordings to you
Nobody is on the Internet today. Everyone is busy with his Bailey's or Guinness Stout, as the case may be. So surely none shall take umbrage if I admit that I do not like the lyrics to "Danny Boy"
... as much as I like the older lyrics to the melody, "Oh, Mary, Dear."
For one thing the "Oh Mary, Dear," suggests that a man should sing it, and it is thrilling to hear this song sung by an Irish tenor.
Whichever lyric you choose, it is also fun to observe St. Patrick's Day with some appropriate Leonard Pennario.
And of course there is this.
